"Don't Tase me Bro!"

GAINESVILLE - According to the AP, a college student who was passionately questioning Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., was tasered after posing difficult questions. A UF student posed questions about impeaching President Bush, why Kerry didn't challenge the 2004 election results and why he and Bush were members of the secret society Skull and Bones at Yale University. The student yelled, "Don't Tase me, bro!" and was then hit with voltage until he shut up.

Civil Rights Lawyer Tampa Florida - Settlement in anti-Bush T-shirt Case

Presidential Advance Manual Authorized Removal of Citizens

A couple arrested at a rally after refusing to cover T-shirts that bore anti-President Bush slogans settled their lawsuit against the federal government for $80,000, the American Civil Liberties Union announced Thursday. The couple were handcuffed and removed from the July 4, 2004, rally at the state Capitol, where Bush gave a speech.

The front of the T-shirts bore the international symbol for “no” superimposed over the word “Bush.” The back of the T-shirt said “Love America, Hate Bush.” On the back of the other T-shirt was the message “Regime Change Starts at Home.” Sources close to the case reported that a presidential advance manual tries to exclude dissenters from the president’s appearances. “As a last resort,” the manual says, “security should remove the demonstrators from the event.”
